Editorial from The Aegis | April 16, 2013
It's the kind of decision that can be lost in the shuffle of more flashy public policy discussions, but the decision last week by leadership at Harford Community College to reject eight bids on a major construction project is the kind of thing more public-funded enterprises should do more regularly. In this instance, the college budgeted $17.423 million for construction of a new building for the Nursing and Allied Health program at the school. Nursing is, and long has been, a cornerstone of community college offerings, particularly at Harford, so it makes perfect sense that HCC would be growing to accommodate such a program.

Alcohol consumption has a long and storied association with college life, much of it not good. The degree to which that association is promoted at Harford Community College is a matter of substantial public concern. Though the discussions are very preliminary, there's talk of asking the local delegation to the Maryland General Assembly to establish a special class of liquor license that would be appropriate for the new APGFCU Arena on campus at HCC. The arena is the largest public venue in Harford County, with seating for in excess of 3,000 people, depending on the type of event.

Towson University will be allowed to construct and operate a new branch on the campus of Harford Community College, under a decision released Friday afternoon by the state's interim secretary of higher education. The $25 million project will proceed despite previously expressed reservations from Morgan State University leaders, who questioned the fairness of allowing Towson to stake a foothold in Harford County, a growing suburb with a rich base of military jobs and no four-year universities.
